New publication by Vera Baye and Prof. Dr. Valeriya Dinger accepted in Real Estate Economics

The new research paper "Investment incentives of rent control and gentrification - Evidence from German micro data" by Vera Baye and Prof. Dr. Valeriya Dinger has been accepted for publication in Real Estate Economics, the journal of the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA).


The paper empirically shows that the effectiveness of the German rent control introduced in 2015 in achieving rental housing affordability is limited. As one reason for this, the authors identify a causal negative effect of the rent control on the yield of rental properties subject to the regulation. In addition, they examine the spillover effects between regulated properties and properties in the affected markets that were exempt from the regulation and find rising yields for the exempt properties. The study thus emphasizes that rent control contributed to gentrification by shifting the supply of rental housing away from the regulated segment.
